For couples struggling to have a baby due to infertility, in vitro fertilisation (IVF) is an option many look to. While it raises the couple’s chance of conceiving, there is no guarantee that it will successfully result in the birth of a baby. So, what exactly are the chances of IVF working first time, and why do treatment cycles fail? Leading fertility specialist Dr Benjamin Abramov is here to explain.
Having a baby is not always straightforward. Genetics and infertility can conspire to make starting a family seem like an impossibility. However, options such as IVF can help to maximise your chances. One such option is pre-implantation genetic screening (PGS), which can help to streamline the IVF process. Fertility specialist Dr Benjamin Abramov explains.
Pre-implantation genetic diagnosis is used for couples who either have a child with a genetic disease, or they have a family member who does. Dr Benjamin Abramov, a fertility specialist, explains what this is in more detail.
